Millstein notes that we used the term “fecundity” in the third of these statements, and she cautions about using terms that the historical figure being interpreted did not use. This is a sound point, and, if we had it to do over again, we would re-word that third statement. The choice of the term was mine, because we used my (Varner 1998, pp. 131–133) original formulation of the five summary statements. I intended “fecund” to mean “fruitful” in the very general sense of producing various products or services that are valuable to humans.
